its protections are. and most importantly, how people can sign up. i know people call this law obama care. and that's okay. because i do care. and -- i do. >> that event highlighting the crucial importance of getting young people to sign up for coverage under the affordable care act. but it is this president's earlier address that offered the clearest picture yet of the president's second-term priorities. with the health care law just one part of a vision focused on greater economic equality. and for this president, it's a political mission that's rooted in the personal. >> the combined trends of increased inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the american dream, our way of life and what we stand for around the globe. so what drives me is a grand son, a son, a father, as an american, is to make sure that every striving, hard-working, optimistic kid in america has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. >> in addition to the president's policy achievements, including the affordable care act, the president offered his support for raising the fede

if their family or they got sick. today the website is working well for the vast majority of users. this law is working, and will work into the future. my main message today is we're not going back. we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >>> back on offense. after two months of being battered by bad media mojo and headaches, president obama is renewing the push for his signature health care law. and this white house knows, they have no time to waste. to promote the law and boost enrollment, the administration will hold an event every single day from now until december 23rd, the deadline to enroll and get insurance for the new year. and it all started this afternoon, with the president himself, who said we are not going back. >> and that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have, is let's go back to the status quo, because they sure haven't presented an alternative. you've got good ideas? bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> no, we're not going to repeal the law. and, in fact, the real ballots may ha

. they want the law to mail and they would start bankrupting insurance companies because they break the model. >> the insurance companies may be bankrupt even further. this is deeply cynical. the website works and let's go back to the argument. we are making in the first place. guess what happened if you don't get the young people. not like the exchanges go away. they become a lot more expensive. they won't wind up killing them, they will wound them and guess who will be stuck with the tab. the taxpayer. with the republicans and conservatives are doing is expanding the government. this is big government conservatism. >> it's ironic because the first part is they don't need and don't want, but the argument is that you don't need health insurance seems to be the weakest part of the argument. maybe somebody who is 18 doesn't think they need it, but somebody who is 26 or 25 or getting to the end of that state on your parent, they are starting to get to the age where they think i do need this. >> yes. starting to mature. starting to realize that maybe this invincible thing is what it's cracked up

. the truth is that most college-age students, because of the law, can stay on their parents' plan. and that may be the best deal for them. we have already insured about 3 million people. ask your first job where you don't have full health insurance benefits may mean that you stay on your parents' plan a little longer. but at some point, let's say when you turn 26, if you're between jobs or you've got a passion, you want to start a business, and you're not going to have health insurance, this gives you the opportunity to get high-quality health insurance, and for most people under 30, it's probably going to cost less than your cell phone bill or cable bill. less than 100 bugs. and, you know there was a time when i looked healthy like these folks and thought i was never going to get sick. what you discover is that some tough stuff happens. you have a run of bad luck. you suddenly need hospitalization. you have an accident. you get an illness. and for young people to recognize that it is in their financial interest and their health interest to be able to get ongoing preventive care.

they -- oftentimes, when they finish their investigation, congress takes their findings and puts them into law. that's what happened with the crash in the buffalo airplane. we now have laws that are -- because the ntsb found there was so much pilot fatigue. we were briefed and i've been on the phone with not only the folks here, but ms. hersman. and let me just say a couple of things. first, when i heard about the speed, i gulped. it sort of takes your breath away. for a train to be going 82 miles per hour around that curve is just a frightening thought. and the fact that it was going at 82 miles per hour even in the 70-mile-an-hour zones, before the curve started, is -- raises so many questions. and is scary. second point i would say is this. they have informed us that it looks pretty certain that the tracks were okay. they're still undergoing signalling, but preliminarily, looking at the signals, they were okay. so two choices. one would be human error on behalf of the engineer. the other would be mechanical error on the locomotive. and they will look thoroughly into that over the next few days an
